This Sparked Me!

Since I spotted another poster's secret to make it easier to clean your dryer lint trap, I'll post this reminder that MANY housefires are caused by excess lint buildup in dryer lint traps. More than we know, according to the local fire fighters! Clean them faithfully before & after each use!

    Great idea Bev! I do (& always have cleaned the one IN the dryer) but had no clue that I needed to clean the trap that vents to the outside of the house. Now I do that monthly.
